Calling all runners, volunteers, supporters, and marathon enthusiasts!
The Josh Platzer Society is pleased to be participating in our third consecutive BMO Vancouver Marathon.
This world class event attracts attention and participants from across the globe, and the Josh Platzer Society is honoured to be recognized as a long-standing participant in the Run 4 Hope, introduced in 2012.
We are currently recruiting:
- Runners! Whether your are considering a full marathon, half marathon, or the 8KM run/8K Teen Challenge, contact us! We have a diverse group of runners we are adding to every year. We ask that our adult runners use their participation as an opportunity to fund raise for the Josh Platzer Society, asking that our runners aim to fundraise at least $200. If you do not meet this goal – YES, you can still run! Remember – all charity runners receive a highly discounted registration fee to participate in the marathon – in return, runners fund raise for their chosen charity/non-profit.
- Volunteers! There are many ways to participate in the BMO Vancouver Marathon outside of running. The Josh Platzer Society has a large group of teenage volunteers from Gladstone Elementary school handing out water, in addition to several other volunteer positions involving a variety of different Marathon support positions! Get in touch to learn more.
- Supporters! Our runners are only able to fundraiser for the Josh Platzer Society thanks to the contributions of people like you! 100% of the donations the Josh Platzer Society receives goes directly to our teen suicide prevention iniaitives. If you would like to support a runner, please find their bio on our website, and follow the links to donate through our secure donation channel, CanadaHelps.org. General donations to the Josh Platzer Society are also welcome!
Please see our I WANT TO RUN page for more information on this opportunity!

Thank you to all of our amazing runners, volunteers, and supporters – you make this event a success every year, and we could not have the impact we do without your support.
One more time – thank you!
